Snowflakes everywhere

A pair of Swedish mountain climbers called upon an air ambulance and rescue team because they were suffering from tiredness.

The husband and wife, who were from the nearby village of Jokkmokk called the emergency services to report that the woman was struggling with walking and was unable to get down from the mountain.

Police responded to the distress call by dispatching an air ambulance and mountain rescue team, but when they eventually located the pair, it turned out that the woman was in fact just tired.

The couple told the air ambulance crew that they had been worn out on the mountain and wanted a lift back down to the bottom.

    Are we playing Guess the Dress Size?

    I’ll go with something from the collection of Omar the Tentmaker.

    Charge them for the cost of the services…..full price…

    When my daughter was born, they had to fly my wife by helicopter to a bigger hospital. For what they charged the insurance company, we could have bought a top of the line, fully loaded Cadillac. Hope these morons have to pay their own bill.

      We’ve had the local Life Flight membership for years. It’s around $60 a year now, but several organizations offer discounts to members.
      It’s cheap insurance against a $35,000 bill.

        My BIL and his wife in TN have something similar. They have only used it once for a friend that got injured on their property. They only live about 20 mins from the local hospital. But it’s so bad they wanted to be able to get to a real hospital double quick.

          It’s great that they could use the service without worrying about the cost. At times like that you just need to do it, not think about how expensive it might be.

    Sweden isn’t what it used to be. Neighbor Norway considers it a failed state. And even rampant Female Genital Mutilation can’t derail the Swedes from their national suicide. I hope we wake up in time and avert a similar tragedy.

    That’s what Sweden wanted and now look what they got. The grass isn’t always greener.

    The same happens everywhere, I remember Doug Ritter lamenting the (metroploitan types) numbers there misusing IPIRB’s (and that was years ago). (I worked on the mountain rescue teams here, in my expansive ‘free/not-deployed’ time, and got more than a little ‘peeved’ at the constant call-outs to ‘rescue’ idiots who went tramping the hills unprepared, under-dressed or just congenitally stupid who expected to be rescued when lost/tired/cold/hungry … less than a mile from the nearest town).

    I’ve served (long time and recent) with a lot of Swedes, they’re as good as it gets (and for having such a small population, their military is bigger than ours – which is embarrassing).

    The problem there is just that, the small population. The ‘political’ is so dominated by the few cities, which are, as everywhere, bastions of ‘lefty/feminist’ thought.

    Imagine if New York State was a country (without the rest of you to tone down the excesses of the SJW types)? Would you lump all the ‘normal’ people in the State in with them just because the citified types were victimising them at the polls?

    Like I always (seem to) say, out of the cities you’d all (still) really like ’em (hunting, shooting, eating, drinking culture and as conservative a bunch of alcoholic, reprobate, Christian ‘real men’ as you’re likely to meet anywhere … and just don’t ask about all the ‘ladies’, not many women, and literally no wimmin, out there.

    So much so that one of my home-away-from-homes is a laavu in Northern Sweden).

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
